Traffic and Horn Honking

Coney Island on July 4, 1946 (NY Daily News)

As many of you know who've tried to get anywhere this weekend, the traffic can be snarled. Friday and Sunday were particularly difficult. Usually starting a little after 10 AM, it builds to a crescendo between noon and 2 PM until in the afternoon, early beachgoers begin heading home.

This year for the first time in many years I can remember, there has been some horn blowing in the traffic. I doubt blowing your horn on Ward Avenue helps the bridge close, or the traffic light in Sea Bright to change to green or makes more parking spaces available.

Let us hope that the horn blowing doesn't become the usual way visitors to the Sea Bright beaches will release their frustration at the traffic!
